Well, I do remember Alana's birthday - the day I first played in
Sloth. As well as the day she inmorted. I am not an imm right now,
but it has nothing to do with my appreciation of the MUD.
I've visited hundreds of MUDs but found very few where I would have
gotten hooked. Original, multiclass and completely free? That's a lot
to ask for. The world of Sloth is completely original (it's a DIKU,
but no DIKU areas); you create your char selecting 4 starting
classes out of 8 possible ones. Everyone who grows enough gets a
fifth class, Avatar: your avatar powers will be different depending
on what your first four classes are.
It is not a roleplaying MUD: some players roleplay a lot, but it's
their own style of play, not something where imms try to enforce their
notions of 'proper' roles.
A lot of the code and areas are built thinking of groups. Groups can
be as big as the leader tolerates, or as small as two. There is no
size-based limits on who you can group with.
Players can define their own channels and there is both a newbie
channel and some people ('Isatars') who are dedicated to helping
If you're looking for a very complex world where knowing the MUD and
knowing other players are equally important, and where exploration
never ends: hop in!
